The commander of the Space Command, Major-General Oleg Maidanovich, reported today that four new early-warning radars - in Yeniseysk, Barnaul, Irkutsk, and Kaliningrad - are now on combat or "experimental combat" duty.

Voronezh-DM radars in Yeniseysk and Barnaul are relatively new, so they are probably in "experimental combat" mode (yes, they are, according to the minister of defense). Voronezh-M in Irkutsk (also known as Voronezh-VP in Mishelevka), was reported to be working in "experimental" mode since 2012, so it is probably fully operational now. The Voronezh-DM in Kaliningrad was said to be working in "experimental" mode in June 2014. (According to Shoygu, Irkutsk and Kaliningrad are in full combat mode now.)

For an update of the locations and sectors covered by the new radars, see the September post.
